1.FC Rielasingen-Arlen:
1.FC Rielasingen-Arlen are making their debut in the competition on Saturday and that too against the German giants and defending champions Borussia Dortmund. The club plays in the sixth tier of German Football and is not known to many people. They booked their place in the DFB Pokal for the first time in their history as they won the South Baden Cup with a 6:1 win against VFL Hausen. Coach Jurgen Rittenauer will be looking forward to this game. In their last 4 competitive games, they won three times and drew once and their preseason campaign didn’t go well as they lost 1:0 and 6:0 to FV Lorrach-Brombach and VFB Stuttgart reserves respectively. They would be looking to give a tough fight to the German Giants.

Predicted Line-up(4-4-2): Klose; Almeida, Bertsch, Winterhalder, Niedhardt; Strauß, S.Stark, Berger, Matt; Wellhäuser, Kayantas.

Borussia Dortmund:
Peter Bosz’s side on the other hand are the probable favourites in this match. Following a defeat against the league winner Bayern Munchen in their home ground in the DFL Super Cup last week, Dortmund won’t be looking to repeat that again.
In their preseason campaign, they won against Rot-Weiss Erfurt recently in a 5:2 victory with youngster Alexander Isak scoring 4 times. Previously they won against Milan 3:1 in the International Champions Cup and against Japanese side Urawa red Diamonds with a 3:2 victory. They were also faced by defeat as they lost to Espanyol, Atlanta and Rot Weiss Essen.
Marco Reus, Raphael Guerreiro and Julian Weigl are in BVB’s injury list and yet to make a return. Schmelzer, Gotze and Rode wont be taking part in the match. Dortmund’s new signings Maximilian Philipp, Mahmoud Dahoud and Dan-Axel Zagadou made their appearances in the German Super cup and might also be in the starting line-up. American starlet Christian Pulisic and German International Erik Durm are doubtful.

Predicted Line-up(4-3-3): Burki; Passlack, Sokratis, Bartra, Zagadou; Castro, Sahin, Dahoud; Isak, Philipp, Aubameyang.

Match Stats:-

The sides have never met before and this will surely be a historical game for Rielasingen-Arlen fans as they hope to make an impact against the Bundesliga heavyweights. While they’ll be motivated to cause an upset, we don’t see them coming near and BVB should easily bag their first win over the rivals.
